For more than a century the ability of microorganisms to perform unique and complex chemical reactions has been employed in a variety of industrial production processes. Now, with increasing concerns about environmental protection and limited sources of petroleum, as the major source of chemicals production, special attention is given to synthetic biology strategies. Sophisticated approaches and tools generated by synthetic biology is fast moving the chemicals industry to an era of endless possibilities. The unique advantages offered by synthetic biology not only help with seeking sustainable solutions to problems associated with traditional methods of chemicals production, but also provide novel and superior chemicals that are more in harmony with the health of humans, animals and the environment.
Synthetic biology is helping the industrial production of chemicals in two fronts:
Compared to traditional approaches used in the production of chemicals, synthetic biology strategies provide the following advantages:
After establishing a clear goal and developing a design strategy, the following services can facilitate the build phase of your synthetic biology-based solutions for producing bio-based chemicals:
